jcorn1, anne dee, Warren Mullins, thank you all..I had started out leaning towards Mexican but it just wasn't working so I decided to go with a more Caribbean vibe, made the headboard and painted the tables and closet doors..I'm so happy with it..Houzz is such a great site..so many ideas and paint colors..

Ann, the blue room was so dull and dark and had ugly carpet on the floor. It was depressing. Now I can focus on the living room with the pink wall...which will be gone soon..

Nicely done. The only thing I might suggest is to angle the rug under the corner of the bed by the chair to loosen the square-ish-ness a bit.

domain123, the accent wall is BM 1194 Mexican Tile, the rest are BM 1137 Sycamore and the doors and night stands are 2035-50 Spruce Green ( semi-gloss ). :-). The bedspread and shams are Tommy Bahama from Home Goods..I made the headboard with fabric I matched to a pillow purchased on sale at Pottery Barn. Table lamps also from Home Goods and the chair is from Pier 1, also on sale.

Angela Pascoe, if I do , that was not my intent. the blue room is the old room and the caribe style room is the new one.

Angela Pascoe, I sent a photo to some Houzzers who were offering advice on another room and perhaps that is why it posted twice. :-(

Angela Pascoe , burnt orange is my favorite color ..I think because there is so much of a black base in it..I just got rid of an orange wall in my living room but that's a whole other story :-(

I repainted mine orange but did one accent wall in a beige. Lol. Kitchen is orange, but I put a sage green, Restful from Home Depot and bring in accents in orange.

I think the blue room is great. B6ut the bedspread doesn't look good withe the blue on your walls! I think a white or cream or even yellow would look 100% better. If you use a white coverlet with several blue throw pillows and 1 yellow it was really pop and give it a better feel &pull it all together. Blues are very hard to decorate with!

decoratinglady - I don't know for sure, but I bet Angela considers that quite a compliment. I think all of us on this site that aren't interior designers would love to be mistaken for one because of having good ideas.
